  • Most video game companies are quick to issue a cease-and-desist legal letter to fan projects based on its games, but for the most part, Sega has realized the value of embracing fans of its iconic blue blur Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • With concern that a new episode drop for Sonic fan-game Sonic Omens might result in the project being shut down by Sega and its lawyers, the publisher's social media representative took to Twitter to clarify the company's stance on fan-produced games.
  • Hey Sonic fans - I appreciate you all reaching out with concerns over fan games and monetization," tweeted MiniKitty.
  • "So long as no profit is involved, there is usually* no issue with y'all using our blue boy to hone your art and dev skills.
